What are you planning to pull or load behind your unit?

Curt hitch makes an RV hitch that you can bolt on. E-trailer has good prices on them.

I took my 5th wheel to a trailer manufacturer / hitch place and had them supply and install. Welded on with reinforcement and they did the wiring. 1000.00 CAD. I tow about 1,100 lbs, ATV and trailer.

Be careful--RV bumpers are a joke. Good for storing waste hose. I don't know of any FR company that recommends using the bumper for anything but decoration.

This could void your warranty. Also, are you aware that most states east of the Mississippi prohibit 5th wheels towing trailers?

Folks, the OP is looking to weld or bolt a receiver to the 5th wheel’s frame. Let’s not fill this thread with comments about the bumper pulling off because he’s not connecting to the bumper.

That said, if you’re going to attach a receiver directly to the frame I’m sure that the frame manufacturer who is responsible for your frame warranty (probably LCI) will frown on that mod, so know going in that they probably won’t honour the warranty if you choose to do this mod and something happens with the frame.
